Paul H. Winchell (1903-1972)

This oils on canvas study is the first oil painting in my collection. I also have another painting by Winchell and will try to post photographs of that painting also.

Caption: Male Nude
Artist: Paul H. Winchell (1903-1972)
Medium: Oils On Canvas
Dated: Undated Early 20th Century

Paul H. Winchell (1903-1972), printmaker, illustrator, instructor, and gilder (framer), was an instructor at the Minneapolis School of Art. He lived in Minneapolis. He studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and his instructors included Leon Kroll, Daniel Garber, and Charles Woodbury. He taught classes in drawing, figure study, and sketching at the School of Art. His travel includes Spain, Africa, Italy, england, Germany, and France. His work is included in the collections of the Minnesota Historical Society and the Minnesota Institute of Arts.

This is the first Academic figure study oil painting I added to my collection. I was impressed with the color palette and the application of paint by the artist. If you look carefully you will quickly see that the artist has made the model sexless. His privates and paps are missing.
